Comentarios: An Expressionist artist of the "beat generation" who, despite alcoholism and poor mental health, was a prolific painter and incessant traveler throughout the U.S. and Europe. In 1964, he was committed to a mental hospital for a year, but he continued to paint his unique form of "outsider," even psychotic, Expressionist imagery.
